In decorating my tree, I came across a butterfly ornament my friend, Karen, gave me last year. She had attached the following legend to it with a ribbon. I decided to display the butterfly with a familiar Christmas blessing. I hope you enjoy it.
Legend of the Butterfly
Has it that
The butterfly is a
Symbol of resurrection to
Eternal life. The beautiful creature
Emerging from the cocoon represents the
Resurrection of Christ from the tomb. Just
As the butterfly bursts forth with a new body,
Those who trust in Christ come forth to new
life. The butterfly represents Flight, Freedom
Break forth, fly and create, my friends.
And he that sat upon the throne said, , . And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
Rev. 21:5 KJV
